The World's Largest Lesson aims to teach children in over 100 countries about the new Sustainable Development Goals that will be adopted by the UN General Assembly later this month.

The "Krrish" star has joined other international public figures such as PLAN global ambassador Freida Pinto, Dani Alves, Kolo Touré, Neymar Jr., and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai.

"The World's Largest Lesson will do more than teach children about the global goals. It will engage them in the effort to achieve those goals - educating them about the challenges that are shaping their futures and encouraging them to drive change in their own communities," Unicef executive director Anthony Lake said in a statement.

Hrithik is passionate about Goal 3 - Good Health & Well-being, and has always believed that it is with good access to healthcare and quality nutrition, that an individual can reach his or her full potential.

The father of two boys said: "As a father, I believe that all children should have access to good education and through this education they learn how to take care of their health. In order to achieve the best, they need to be fit and healthy. It enables children to push their extreme. These are fundamental rights that every child deserves hence I champion Goal 3 Good Health."
